Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It seems like with the addition of the new StackExchange menu in the upper left corner, I now receive notifications in two separate places. I think I understand why.. site specific notifications like on StackOverflow and notifications across various StackExchange sites.

However, it seems that when I have notifications in both places, they are not CLEARED in both places.

For example:

  1. I have 7 StackOverflow notifications while browsing. (orangered envelope and StackExchange icon)
  2. I click my orangered envelope
  3. System clears orangered envelope
  4. System does NOT clear StackExchange notifications (the same notifications I view in my StackOverflow profile)

If I view the notifications in either place, shouldn't they be cleared in both places?
